The Orange Stuff

Nothing beats mom's cooking.

If there was one thing you have to know about my mom, she loves to cook. I wish I had the same passion for cooking.

Over the years, I've tried many of her recipes. Often trying to relive my childhood, and duplicate mom's meals.

But there is one chicken dish that my boys absolutely love!

It's a simple meal with chicken, potatoes, onions, garlic, bay leaf, green peas or chick peas if you prefer. Just add tomato paste and water for the sauce, and salt and pepper for flavour. Let it cook for thirty minutes, and you have an easy and hearty meal.

After eating, they would always ask, "What do you call this?"

I don't know.

Even to this day, my own mother can't give me a name!

The other day, I made the favourite chicken dish.

It wasn't lunchtime, and A.R rushed downstairs.

"Mom, did you make the orange stuff?"

Huh?

Oh.

"Yes, I did."

I guess we have a name.
